Class A Fire Fighting Foam
A Class A fire fighting foam lowers the surface tension of the water, which assists in the wetting and saturation of Class A fuels. This in turn, aids fire suppression and can prevent reignition.
These type of foams do not contain any fluorine or silicon. Also, they have a great wetting capability in very low concentration, allowing soaking into solid substrates (wood, cardboard…) accelerating the extinguishing process and reinforcing the resistance to reignition. They are specially indicated to be used in CAFS (Compressed Air Foam Systems), obtaining very uniform and wet foam (Expansion Ratio 1-10) as well as dry foam (Expansion Ratio 10-20). Fast cooling and a very low environmental impact make them ideal for fighting urban fires.

Although they can be considered as a Class A fire fighting foam, short-term forest fire retardants deserve a special consideration by the field-of-use. They have to be used at mixing ratios between 0.1% and 1% depending if the foam is used as a wetting agent or if it is preferred to be applied as structural foam, stuck to trees and bushes extinguishing the fire and conferring great resistance to reignition. They should be able to be used in land-systems (foam nozzles, fog-stream, high pressure) as well as air-systems (planes, helicopters, hydroplanes).
Due to the systems they are used in, these Class A foams must possess good anti-corrosion properties in materials such as iron, brass, aluminium, magnesium, etc. which are commonly used in the aeronautical sector. Importantly, they also need to have the lowest environmental impact possible, allowing therefore the re-germination of the plants in the treated territory.
